Myanmar flights

Postby jeremybw1 » Sat Jan 07, 2017 2:56 pm

Hey all - hoping to do a Phnom Penh to Myanmar trip and tickets are a little pricier than I anticipated. Any advice on the cheapest or most efficient airlines?

PP-Bangkok ( Don Meung)- Mandalay or Yangon on air asia (from around $120 each way) ,not expensive at all

Thanks! Do you know how far in advance you typically must apply for a tourist visa?

If you are eligible for visa-free travel to Vietnam you can save around $50 by flying one way Yangon - Ho Chi Minh then taking a bus to PP from there ($7). You're only allowed one free entry into Vietnam/month though.

As for the visa, it's much cheaper to go to the Burmese embassy at the corner of Norodom and Mao Tse Tung. It was $20 instead of $50 and took around 5 days. However, I believe the visa fees have just been raised so you'll likely have to pay a bit more.

visa at embassy is now $46 i have heard

WHY on earth would someone get a ( $50 ) visa and fly to Yangon ( another $100 or so) to get a $50 flight to Vietnam??? :facepalm: :popcorn:
